More character, more space, more security: With these words, the car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz from Stuttgart presented the new GLA-Class with the internal designation H 247 at the end of 2019 and thus replaced the prdecessor of the same name, which had been sold since 2013. Spark has received the license to manufacture the scale 1:43 modelcars. The advertising models in the packaging typical of Mercedes-Benz include a miniature in designo patagonia red bright under item number B66961035 and one in digital white under B66961034. The look and feel of the modelcars correspond exactly to the four-door role models. The large tailgate as well as the bonnet and doors remain closed, as is usual in this size. Let's take a look at the details of the model and the prototype, the ideal vehicle for a weekend with family, which Z-Models has issued in format 1:18.
Headlights including inner life, rear lights and sill trims, fog lamps and stylized underrun protection or rear diffusor - Spark did an excellent job again and worked out the details of the GLA II very well. The exterior mirrors with side indicators are just as impressive in their design as the seamlessly fitted glass roof. The modelcars carry replicas of the 19-inch alloy wheels that are on the extra charge list for 1,487.50 euros. The entry into the GLA can start at EUR 38,341.00. The miniatures are made of high quality polyurethane cast resin. Spark engraves the door handles from the body. With these modelcars, the original purpose of the miniatures, to advertise their role model (André Citroën had this idea first), is excellently fulfilled!
“With the introduction of the new GLA, we have completely renewed our compact car family,” says Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Sales: “The high demand for our SUV shows that we are here have the right model on offer for all of our customers. According to your wishes, there are two off-roaders, the GLB and GLA, which complement each other perfectly: The GLB is the most functional and spacious representative of our compact class family, while the new GLA is positioned as a sporty brother and lifestyle-oriented SUV. ”The range of engines extends from the GLA 180 with 100 kW / 136 hp up to the GLA 250 with 165 kW / 224 hp. The AMG versions that are even stronger, are not reproduced with the modelcars, which are presented here. The GLA 250 e Hybrid offers a system output of 160 kW / 218 hp. Nice weekend!
